Another great episode! But what I want to compliment you on is the inclusion of maps. Putting the narrative in a geographic context, both verbally and visually, helps enormously with comprehension.
All too many historians–and recently, history podcasters–do a poor job of putting their narrative in a geographic context. Robin, I am glad to say, has never “suffered” from this shortcoming.
Robin, when you interact with fellow history podcasters, or if someone asks you for advice on what to do to get their history podcast off the ground, please include “post maps to your website, and orally put the story in a geographic context.” [Also, posting to Facebook or via Twitter does me no good. Post to a website.]
Keep up the wonderful work.
